The DCF inspections, Florida Administrative Code, and related regulations provide or basic or minimal requirements. Just because a facility passes an inspection does not mean that the facility is properly providing for the health, safety, and well being of the children in the Day Care / Child Care Facility. Florida children suffer personal injuries in the form of fractures, lacerations, bruises, and head injuries in Day Care and Child Care Facilities. Many of the injuries could have been prevented with a safer learning and custodial environment as well as more diligent supervision.
